The Sisters Antipodes

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

Novelist Jane Alison discusses her memoir about her parents switching partners with another couple. The Sisters Antipodes tells the story of what happened when her parents divorced and remarried, throwing Jane and her sister-- and their two stepsisters--into a competition for the affections of their absent fathers, a contest that would prove tragic.

Was there another book written by the other sisters? This sounds vaguely familiar to me.
